Thing Link – add hotspots to images
Thing Link is one of our favourite apps. It allows you to add ‘hot spots’ to a picture linked to a url. Wonderfully easy to use. If you are working on digital vocational narratives then young people could choose their own picture or, if they want suggestions, how about a full length picture of themselves with hot spots from their hands (linked to skills they have), hotspot on their head (for knowledge), on their heart (for feelings) etc etc. You get the idea. Here are a few links to another project we were involved in. These were for primary teachers but you get the idea!
